Dark eyelids along with dark circles under the eyes are a common concern for many people. The sensitive zone around the eyes including the eyelids where we find the skin is extremely thin, is a reflection of our life and health. It shows our tiredness, stress and worries.
It’s important to understand what can cause dark eyelids and circles, in order to be able to remedy the problem. Firstly we must consider that the delicate inner eye and lid contain blood vessels which are part of an underlying vascular network. When the microcirculation slows this results in less oxygenated blood, and this contributes to a blueish appearance under the skin.
Secondly a key contributing factor in the formation of dark eyelids and circles is down to blood leakage. The eye contour releases haemoglobin which creates deposits of pigment and iron that accumulate in the epidermis and dermis and is responsible for the violet colouration that shows through the skin.
What can you do to improve the visible appearance of dark eyelids and circles?
You can drink more water to help nourish your body, sleep for at least 7 hours per night and preferably form a regular sleep pattern. A healthy nutritious diet can be very beneficial. Incorporate Vitamin C and bioflavonoids into your diet as they are important antioxidants that help keep your eyes and body healthy. Foods high in Vitamin C, such as citrus fruits and many vegetable are an excellent source of bioflavonoids. Vitamin C is very good at promoting healthy skin and blood vessels, including the delicate capillaries in the retina.
Be gentle with your eyes and try not to stretch the skin, rubbing your eyes can break the tiny vessels which can aid the formation of dark circles.
